Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) weighed in Wednesday on what New Jerseyans call their sandwiches.
The senator corrected a guess made on the air Wednesday morning by NBC’s Chuck Todd, who had noted that President Obama’s visit Wednesday to the Tastee Sub Shop in Edison, N.J., “[settles] the age-old question of whether you call it a sub, a grinder or a hoghoagie.”
Lautenberg replied on Twitter:
“In #NJ we call them subs in the north and hoagies in the south. But nowhere in #NJ are they called grinders.”
